Exploring embodied mindfulness in therapy
Instead of telling people to ‘not be in their heads’, it is much more effective to help them find a different focus. You can do this by giving clients a stress ball. This is a quick and easy way to help clients shift from mostly relying on mental processing to availing themselves of embodied awareness as well.
See a 25-minute video about what can be explored with this approach. For ease of use, the video is divided into several short clips, each of which has a transcript. See links below for the video clips.
